Sold: Robust 5.5" x 20" Gap-bed, Backgeared & Screwcutting Lathe

A classic lathe of unknown make - but a robust 5.5" x 20" gap-bed, backgeared, screwcutting machine with power cross feed and in full working order. Fitted with tumble-reverse drive to the leadscrew and a large T-slotted saddle that can be used as a boring table.  In one family for 90 years (the son of the original owner made the toolpost and faceplate when an apprentice in the early 1950s). Fitted a very well-constructed, built-on countershaft unit with a neat belt-tensioning adjuster and a recent 1-phase motor controlled by a Dewhurst switch. Complete with a 3-jaw chuck, a full set of screwcutting changewheels, faceplate, drive dogs, two toolposts, tailstock chuck, turning tools and a number of Morse taper drills. £450.
